    Paper Negs Only

    We've got some great threads going that show different lens types, different subjects, I thought it might be fun to show off what you can do with paper negatives. The one I'll start with took about 40 minutes from inception when I clipped the blossums to completion. Great fun and you get to see your results about as quick as you can get the paper into some Dektol.

    12" Wollensak f5 Petzval. Kodak RC paper. Yellow aerial recon filter. Wide open, 4 sec.

    Show us what ya got. Better yet, go make something.

    I don't have a credit card and therefore haven't ordered yet, but I plan to. About 50 sheets of it. I figure I'll shoot at ISO 6 and develop in Rodinal 1+25 and/or Liquidol.

    Just curious. Did you validate that EI range with your Biocular densitometer? I think mine needs recalibrating!

    Nice image, as usual!
